Welcome to Rome

Explore Rome

Find Your Perfect Rome Apartment

Where to stay

Figuring out where exactly to stay on your long or short visit to Rome depends on many factors. Budget, personal interests, proximity to historical sites, vacation activity planning, etc. Using Wimdu to find a vacation rental or apartment in Rome will prove to be an excellent decision, thanks to the quantity of high-quality listings available. The best plan of action for a Rome first-timer would be to find an apartment in the old city near the Pantheon or Colosseum. An alternative area for accommodation in Rome would be around Barberini station, just on the outskirts of the old city center, or the Cipro neighborhood right next to Vatican City. The Trastevere district, just south of the old city, is good for nightlife. For more luxurious apartments or flats for rent, the famous Via Veneto north of Barberini is the perfect area.

Things to do

The monuments are fantastically well preserved; the piazzas are wide and sweeping, and the social scene is as alive and kicking as it was over 2000 years ago. The city certainly wears its heart on its sleeve. You need only wander the hot dusty streets to discover the best of it. A ‘Roma Pass’ will give you entry to two historical sights of your choice and discounts on other attractions. Which two should you choose? The Temple of the Pantheon, an early Roman temple dedicated to the Gods of Ancient times, is one of Rome’s best preserved ancient buildings, and the Colosseum is an excellent example of the genius of Roman engineering. It was here that brutal battles, chariot races and gladiators entertained crowds of up to 50,000 people. Head to the Piazza Giuseppe Garibaldi for a spectacular view over the city.

Eating and Drinking

“When in Rome, do as the Romans do”, as the famous saying goes. Well, the Romans like to eat and drink, and there is plenty of choice for both delights to be had in this city. Of course there is a great selection of the obvious choices of pizza and pasta, but there are many traditionally Roman delicacies to be savored that you might not have heard of. Try some Fiori di zucca, zucchini flowers prepared in a deep fried batter, or perhaps you would like a more meaty Scaloppine alla romana, veal sautéed with fresh baby artichokes. For you sweet tooths, there is the well-known tiramisu, and plenty of ice cream flavors to be enjoyed. Another option is to buy ingredients from one of the many food markets or delis and take them back to cook up in your apartment.

Getting Around

Fiumicino Airport, Rome’s main airport is located 19 miles to the west of the city centre. The best way to get into the centre is to take a train from the airport train station. Getting around the city itself is fairly straightforward and there is a variety of public transportation available. The tram network is extensive. Stazione Termini is the name of the main train station from which you can travel to other major European cities and smaller Italian towns. Old Rome is the Renaissance centre of the city, just to the left of the modern centre, Vatican City, in western Rome is a treasure trove of sights and museums, the North Centre is known as home for the elegant districts, Colosseo, south of the Modern Centre is where the Colosseum can be found and Nomentano, in Eastern Rome is considered to be the best part of the city for nightlife.

Although small, a very nice, quiet apartment ideally placed to visit all the sights of Rome. Our only criticism is that being not very tall, I found the stools too high for me and had to ask for assistance to reach some things. Our host...
